No, i'm a boy.
You a cutie!

Why would people want that a boxing dedicated tv channel fails?
Why?
You ever thought the majority don't care either way, i find the ones who act like it's their child equally as sad and disturbing as the ones who want it to fail.

Is it a good channel for boxing.............YES
Do i want it to carry on........................YES
Do i really care if it goes bust................NO
Am i wishing it does.............................NO

Simply boxing goes on if it goes bust, any hardcore fans who want to watch some shite at 3am will always have a way to do so. the channel has zero domestic cards, so whilst i like the channel frankly whether it succeeds or fails i have no interest in.

Gary Barlow theres 2 domestic cards on it in the next 3 weeks so I'm not sure where that zero has come from. And there certainly will be more now with thew new promoters I suspect.

Last weekend was good on Sky , but really before that much of their domestic output has been utter shit. Prizefighter and Kevin Mitchell vs TBA is their next one, hardly stellar stuff?

Yeh just ignore the previous 6 months on BoxNation and that the week after theres a good card on Sky.

In 2013 when it comes to domestic boxing, Sky have dicked all over BoxNation.

The likes of Price, Cleverley etc... would always get on TV. Most of the cards recently have been outside FWP. I don't see how the channel benefits UK Boxing right now.

It might change now with Hatton & Maloney, but frankly who do they have ? Murray & Price ? rest are shite.

If a 1 promoter has control over british scene then more domestic dust ups would happen.

I don't think a monopoly would be a good think Gary, I doubt it ever will realistically happen either. I think the competition will force both sides to up their game, last weeks card on Sky was good. I agree the new promoters have fuck all, and I expect Price to be sparked this weekend , so to me it probably isnt the big deal FW says.
Hatton still has Crolla does he?

I cant quote of the shows tbh Rob even though I've watched most. I agree they have done well this year but we all agree Prizefighter is worthless and theres a chance that they may improve domestic output.

but if the best of british are split between both channels the best fights will never happen. neither fw or matchroom will allow there big fighters on other channel. so without a monopoly british boxing his boring ass chess game between promoters.

I think we could see some of them on the other channels like the lower ranked. But yeah the big names no, but what realistically big name fights will we miss?
Clev - Froch will probably never happen but then again I dont really think its a necessary fight anyway
Gavin - Brook but then Rob says Frankies a free agent. Anyway there hasnt been much clamour for this and I doubt it would be made regardless
I'm far more annoyed about the GB/TR split because we are missing genuine world class fights because of it.

On another note I'm only just signing up to boxnation on the sky yoke I have , does the monthly payment go from 1 July - 1 August or sign up date - 30 days later.
Also I'm hoping to pay with a different debit card to my sky hope thats okay.

Signing up to support it really and wanna see Price Thompson. Hopefully a Thompson KO will pay for my sub plus more :deal
